Oak Storage Bench #6: This Lid/Seat

03-08-2016 04:14 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

No voiceover today. I needed just under 18” to make the top, so I opted to make the panel out of 3 – 6” wide boards. I chose 6” because that is pretty much the maximum capacity of my jointer. I got to use my biscuit joiner for the first time on this project. I got it for a steal on clearance last year and have been waiting to use it ever since. Once I got it dialed in, it was pretty easy to use. The joints lined up perfectly with the biscuits aiding in the alignm...

Oak Storage Bench #5: The Path to Glue-Up

02-20-2016 06:47 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

A lot has to happen between cutting the joinery and gluing the panels. I had to fine tune many of the joints, repair some mistakes, and make some finishing cuts to the legs and arms of the bench. Once that was all done, I could glue up the panels. It is nerve-wracking because you only get one shot. Needless to say I did about 100 dry-fits just to be absolutely certain everything would go together properly. The glue-up went as planned without any hiccups. I had to sand most of the joints...

Episode 3 - Hydro-Painting Finish

10-12-2015 07:07 AM by Mike | 2 comments »

Hi All; This week I was very busy so I didn’t have time for a more traditional project video. I did want to try a new finishing technique I had come across called Hydro-Painting. It involves spray paint and a bucket of water. The resulting box is from one of my first attempts. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks, Mike View on YouTube

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #3: Creating the shop workspace

09-16-2015 07:37 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

I spent over a third of my recent life in a small home with a single-car garage. One year for Christmas or my birthday, my wife bought me a set of Simpson Strong-Tie brackets designed by them to be all you needed (metal-wise) to build a shop bench. You got to pick the dimensions and, in part, the layout, but the bench would have a top surface and a shelf. I never got to build it while married to her because she kept filling up the garage with yard-sale junk. I had a narrow path from the g...

Traveling Anarchist's Tool Chest #1: Getting the Carcass Ready

03-16-2015 07:01 PM by Luke Addington | 5 comments »

Here’s my progress so far on my Traveling Anarchist’s Tool Chest. I got a very good deal on some wide Sapele so I decided to go with that. It’s starting to become one of my favorite woods. It stays dead flat, saws beautifully, and responds to the chisel very well. The interlocked grain, while a bit difficult to plane, I think will prove to be worth the effort in the long run. The crazy widths you can find it in are nice too! For the most part I lifted the dimensions from ...

Childs Play #6: Small Tool Chest #2.. Done Just Need to Finish..

12-20-2014 05:33 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

I am not exactly sure how I pulled this off in 8 days but I have finished up the build portion of the chest and tomorrow will be putting some finish on it. With the speed of the build I didn’t get as many pics as I had hoped but here is a series that picks up where the last entry left off to present. I hope to have this up in the projects section tomorrow sometime :D The lid ended up slightly smaller than the case (I measured once and cut twice so ...

Bridal chest #5: Almost final assembly

08-01-2014 05:52 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Today was some odds and ends and final assembly of the bridal chest. It’s not complete. I’ve got to get a little more maple to finish off with some moldings around the lid lip and the skirt. The stainless piano hinge is being mounted on the cover..Here you can see the hinge mounted to the chest along with an arm that locks the lid in a 90 degree open position.Also, I’ve made a box with divider out of maple that slides along the top inside of the chest..Here it is slid ove...
